Snow overview for France
Thursday 11 February 2016

This week has seen a good amount of snowfall across our featured French resorts. Of the resorts we feature around the world, French resorts fill 42 of the top 100 slots for fresh snow totals over the last seven days, eight of which are in the top ten.

The heaviest snowfall recently has landed in the resorts along the Chamonix valley, and in particular at Argentiere (40/250cm) where over two metres if snow has landed in the last seven days. The base depth at Lognan, often referred to as the lower skiing area at Argentiere, was 193cm on Thursday 11th February.

The conditions around Chamonix (40/360cm), as across France, should continue to improve with all of our featured French resorts forecast further snowfall over the next nine days. The greatest amount of new snow is expected to land in the Espace Killy ski area and in particular at Val d’Isere (134/235cm). La Grave (60/110cm) and Bonneval sur Arc (110/230cm) are also looking good. All three of these resorts could receive in excess of two metres of new snow over the next nine days. Even though the forecast for these three resorts is excellent, they are not alone. All of our featured French resort should get new snow, from 35cm over the same period at Font Romeu (35cm) up to over a metre of fresh at resorts further north, as well as in other resorts in the Pyrenees.

A great week in Argentiere
Overall rating: 3 stars

We spent an enjoyable week in Argentiere over Easter and stayed in the Hotel Grand Montets which is conveniently located right next to the Grand Montets lift and bus stop but about 15 minute walk from the town. The Ski Club catching up service proved very useful and we met another family with whom we were able to ski for most of the week which proved a hit with our teenagers. As long as you don't mind commuting by bus or car to the various ski areas around Argentiere then this will be a good choice - for those who want all their skiing on their doorstep then it is far from ideal. For good intermediate/advanced skiers Vallee Blanche should be on your bucket list - unforgettable!
